Lycra Tri Suits – Latest Design from O2 Fit


New 02 Tri Suit – $70.00 AUD online

The great thing about the 02 Tri Suit is the ability to pretty much run, swim, go to the gym and have a really intense workout and not worry about having to change your clothing between activities.

Tri suits, whilst made for triathlons are a really functional piece of workout attire. A typical workout might include a run or walk to get the body warm, followed by a gym workout with weights, To finish off a workout might also include a swim at the end (just shower though so you are clean before you get in).

O2 Compression makes this Black Men’s Trisuit and states that the benefits include:

o2fit’s triathlon suits is sleek and fitted in a way to give you the best performance in both your triathlon training and on the big day.

The suit allows you to swim, ride and run without needing to spend time changing gear during the transitions. Most professional triathletes will wear a triathlon suit because it offers an all-in-one, multi-purpose garment that can be worn from the moment you arrive, right through to the recovery period after the event.

Our triathlon suits include chamois padding (micro fleece 85% polyester + 15% spandex) in the crotch for comfort during the ride, while not impeding swimming or running ability.

They are made from quick dry material which will ensure that you dry off as quickly as possible between the swim and the ride to prevent chafe.

Other benefits include:

  • Leg grippers so you don’t have to worry about the short legs riding up while you train or race
  • Reduced drag in the water to ensure you perform at your best and aren’t overworked in the early stages of the event reducing muscle oscillation upon ground contact increasing torque generated about joints
  • Reducing the risk of injury by enhancing recovery following strenuous exercise by aiding in the removal of blood lactate and improving subsequent exercise performance increasing feelings of positive leg sensations both during and following strenuous exercise
  • Reducing the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness in the days following strenuous exercise

Our strategic flat-lock stitching means enhanced comfort and a great fit.

Does o2fit compression products have a UV rating?

Yes, all of our products have a UV rating of 50+.

Mighty Metty


Great post from La Vida Lycra regarding the athlete Sue Metcalfe – the strong woman of lycra.

I caught up with Sue (Metty) Metcalf on the eve of her departure from Australia to take up residence in North America.

People move countries for different reasons – for love, for work, to widen their horizons or to seek a community of kindred spirits. Metty is moving for all of these reasons, but her primary goal is to take her quest for world power domination to the next level.

Sue Metcalf raises the bar Sue Metcalfe raises the bar

Sue is not chasing political power, although her vocation is to campaign for youth justice, and she will continue this advocacy in the USA.  No, Metty is installing herself amongst the world’s biggest community of protein-munching, physical-power perfecters. And she isn’t there to join them, but to lead them!

Until recently, Sue’s greatest sporting achievement was being chosen for representative Netball. However, since becoming Australia’s strongest woman and winning second place in the USA in…

Introducing 02Fit – Compression Wear that Wont Break the Bank


Finding good quality compression wear can be a hit and miss affair.

Some brands such as Skins and 2XU can be over $100 a piece

However 02Fit Compression wear is reasonably priced and looks great

.

 

Below is an excerpt from 02 Fitness on why they started making good quality compression wear which was under $100.00!

o2fit is Australia’s cheapest compression clothing online retailer. We are based in Perth, Western Australia and are 100% Australian owned and operated.

The three of us started o2fit with the belief that people shouldn’t have to pay over $100 to be able to use compression clothing. So we set out to find if we could get the price lower for compression clothing without reducing the quality.

We were amazed with what we found. There was no reason why compression clothing had to be above $100. There was no reason why it had to even be over $50.

You only have to watch a televised game of AFL or surf the web to work out why our competitors are so expensive. They are using your wallet to help pay for their massive advertising budgets. Plastering massive billboards on sporting ovals, hijacking websites with large banner adverts and sponsoring professional athletes adds up quickly and the only way to pay for that is to have huge profit margins.

We decided to go down a different path. We aren’t stupid – we know that a business can’t survive without revenue. But instead of only getting a small amount of people to pay a ridiculous amount for a pair of compression pants we would much rather have lots of customers paying an affordable amount. We know from experience that our product and price will speak for itself.

There are three areas which we believe set ourselves apart from the others.

  1. The first is price and quality. We are the cheapest compression clothing brand in Australia, but that doesn’t mean the quality is lower than the other products.
  2. The second thing is our approach to our customers. We are passionate about o2fit and want to see more people using compression clothing in Australia. That’s why it isn’t a chore for us to speak to our customers. If you flick us an email the reply will come from one of o2fit’s owners. We are always improving our products and adding new product lines. We do that based on your feedback. We don’t discount a comment just because it is from one individual, every bit of feedback is important to us.
  3. And finally, our approach to advertising. We know that people will recommend an affordably priced and a quality product to their friends and family. We don’t have a massive national advertising budget to get our brand known so we are relying our product and service to speak for itself. That means we can keep our product prices low and as a result more Australian will get the benefits of using compression clothing.

Kids Lose It In Lycra – Fun Compression Wear!


Flower Power Compression Garments – Top with Faux Cape (Large, X-Large, XX-Large) currently discounted to $49.95 US

I’ve come across a website that sells compression clothing for special needs children:

One of the best ways to develop and improve products, for use by occupational and physical therapists who work with children, is to meet them in person and hear what works – or doesn’t work – in the field. Children can be challenging clients to treat because, quite often, their focus is on “being cool” and “fitting in” with their peers, rather than achieving strength, stability and coordination.

“OTs have lamented to me that kids don’t want to wear compression clothing,” says Diana Hohmann, senior brand manager for FlagHouse Special Needs. “Kids with Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Sensory Processing Disorders (SPDs) and more, who need the benefits of deep pressure – such as posture bolstering, alertness, mental focus, body awareness, etc. – don’t get excited about putting on drab, uncomfortable compression clothing and then wearing it in front of their friends. And I don’t blame them!
